I live in the land of Mouse so I have seen enough princess topiaries to make my eyes bleed. Yet, there is something so fun about creating life from life.

American artist Boris Bally has blown my mind with these chairs and tables made from metal signs.
Even better is that at the bottom of the feet, old champagne corks are used as pads *sigh* genius
Thanks to Design Milk for the nudge

I met Angie Ross on Punkymoms almost five years ago. We were both there searching to find other like minded alternative mothers out there. We succeeded and I can honestly say that my core group of friends here in Orlando are all Punkymoms.
With that said, I am so proud (again!) of Angie. She recently visited the World Food Program Guatemala Operations and had to do something here to help. She has put together a great benefit for this coming Saturday night. If you are local in Orlando, I ask you to come out. Nothing says getting older then giving your money to charity instead of the bar downtown.

Oh weekend. *Poof* You are gone.
Hubby and I were kid free for part of the weekend and decided to take some time for ourselves and have a little mini vacation in town. It was pretty decadent complete with shopping trips, crab legs, filet, lamp chops, craft beers, couch surfing, new bars, pool relaxing, and dancing to all the 80s new wave songs I love so much. Mission completed.
Kids art show we attended
Lots of catching up to do. So I leave with you some fun shots from my weekend. Let's talk design tomorrow.

If you don't know about the Graphics Fairy, you should. As one would expect from a fairy, she leaves little gifts and makes your dreams come true. We all love free clip art, amiright?
Head over and get your Ephemera fix

Have you met Carnitas? I stumbled on this video about a month ago and have become this little guy's biggest fan. Ridiculously cute. There are other videos out there. Yes, I want a mini pig like now!
My weekend was filled with pigs it seems. I went antiquing with the family and saw this darling steampunk pig.
But the pièce de résistance was that I was able to go to my first ever pig roast. I was very weary about eating something with its face still on. I'm not going to lie, it was crazy...with its wee beady eyes..
WARNING - LOOK AWAY IF YOU DON'T WANT TO SEE A WHOLE PIG COOKED
I'll admit, it was yummy. Thank you pig
My daughter going for some pig tongue?! Who is this child?
